Our first trip with this company was to the Daintree Rainforest with tour guide Michelle. She had vast knowledge on the areas we visited and was very accommodating and offered great customer service. We even had a surprise trip where we hand-fed some Wallabies. It was a great day, a full day and one of our favourites during our 3... More

Australian Luxury Escapes was a very big help in managing our 27-person group with ages ranging from 1 year to 79 years of age. We were provided with well organized transportation, tours, and hotels. Our guide, Ray, was very understanding of our needs and provided us with excellent information. Overall, it was an outstanding job by Australian Luxury Escapes!

An excellent tour for anyone interested in wildlife and social and political information of Australia. Daniel was a very good tour guide, 'though his knowledge of local birds was not always accurate. The penguin parade was a once in a lifetime experience.

Hello Jacky, Thank you for the great feedback from your recent tour with us to Phillip Island. Daniel is an excellent guide but it sounds as though he needs to broaden his knowledge of birds. I will pass this onto him. Thanks again Jacky and we hope to see you on another Australian Luxury Escape soon. Grant. More

We enjoy small tour groups in a van, not huge tour buses. They allow for more information to flow and the opportunity to ask questions. You can stop more often and at different locations.
